Speaking of dip: Roasted vegetables — eggplant, peppers, tomatoes, ground down with sauteed onion and garlic. Very tasty topping for a cracker or some bread, or, perhaps, accompanying banitsa.
A yummy, crispy catfish cutlet correlate from that pain in the ass vegan. Nice and crunchy crust; very good flavor: The little guy munched them away for a midnight snack, asking for, “…more of that chicken stuff you made.”
The breaded batter perhaps could be a little less creamy, maybe hand macerate the chick peas, or, throw in some vermicelli.
The accompanying dill sauce is awesome also.
